NBA: Warriors En Route to 73 Wins and Chance to Make HistoryPublished April 13, 2016 by Sol FH
The Golden State Warriors have tied the 1995/96 Chicago Bulls single season win record, with one more game left to make history, late night tonight at 3:30 GMT.
The Warriors claim not to even be thinking about beating the Bulls' single season wins record, but they could not possibly have the notion completely out of their minds. Steve Kerr's team is just the second in NBA history to win 72 games, and getting that win against the second place Spurs, after dominating the second, third and fourth quarters at AT&T Center was a feat that left the record wide open.
Tonight the Warriors will most-likely make history after winning their last regular season game at home against the Memphis Grizzlies. It will not be an easy game, lest we forget that the Grizzlies almost beat the Warriors on Saturday night, only to lose by one-point in the dying seconds. The Warriors have beaten the Grizzlies in all three of their games this season, but the score has been getting much closer with every game played.
The Bulls or the Warriors?
There has been a ton of news about whether or not this years' Warriors are better than the 1995/96 Bulls. Obviously looking at the win records of each team looks close on paper, but could Steph Curry lead the Warriors over Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman, Toni Kukoc and 'ahem' Steve Kerr, is an argument that will never be solved. The game has changed so much over the years and whether the talent now is that much better than then is still a question on the minds of many.
Regular Season Locked for Golden State
The Golden State Warriors mathematically won the Western Conference a few games back and are already looking ahead to the playoffs. The chance for back-to-back NBA Championships would fuel the "who is the better team debate" even more, but it doesn't really matter. The fact is that the Warriors have tied an important record, they have beaten every single team in the Western Conference a few times this year, and are the favorites to win the NBA Championships yet again.
